Haiti – Surviving on Mud Cookies

Several of us at our late, lamented PBS international news program, WorldFocus, have just been nominated for an Emmy for one of the Haiti stories we worked on last year. The emphasis, especially now, however, should be that Haiti deserves — and cries out more than ever for — a global response to misery and impoverishment that was unbearable even before the earthquake.

I urge continued support to relief agencies in Haiti. My designated favorite is Partners in Health, www.pih.org, founded by Paul Farmer.

here’s the original story
